Message from the Shop

Since its inception in 1985 Northwest Automotive has worked to be your complete, one-stop neighborhood vehicle repair facility.When you call one of our shops, your call will be answered by an ASE certified Master Repair Technician who will be able to answer your questions and offer helpful advice. Our technical staff average over 20 years of experience each and have access to the latest technical training and equipment.

Our store managers and service writers will convey this information to you in a friendly, forthright manner so that you can make informed decisions about your vehicle service needs. We will complete the repairs you authorize in a timely manner using quality parts and attention to detail. We will stand behind our work with a no fine-print warranty covering parts, labor and towing anywhere in the US good for a year or longer. Our goal is your total satisfaction with every repair. We want to be your repair shop for life!We are grateful to all of you who have made our success possible, and look forward to serving you in the years ahead.Doug, Raoul, Bob and the crew of Northwest Automotive.

Verified CustomerJanuary 02, 2013

Very friendly, did a good job, delivers promptly, and the rates are always fair.

Verified CustomerJanuary 02, 2013

They have great service but a little remote. They are a little out of the way. Other than that they have great service. They fix my car and don't pressure me into doing anything else. They don't do anything extra without asking.

Verified CustomerJanuary 02, 2013

Doug and the staff was very thorough and provided a rather comprehensive kind of snap shot of how your vehicle is performing. He is definitely the type of mechanic, where you would take your car in to where your car was at two hundred thousand miles, if you do what he says. He is very preventative. Not the cheapest men on the block, but he really takes care of you.

Verified CustomerDecember 05, 2012

I found the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. They listened to me and were very accommodating to my time schedule, being willing to drop of my vehicle at my convenience. They would also offer the willingness to take me wherever I needed to go if I dropped of my car for the day.

Verified CustomerDecember 05, 2012

They were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond. They are kind of a smaller operated place and they made me feel like I wasn't a number and I was well taken care of. They do a great job.

They are probably the best at what they do. They are very fair with the value of the dollar, and I wouldn't take my car anywhere else.

Verified CustomerOctober 04, 2012

They are professional. They do a very good job on the cars. They keep them clean. They are willing to give you rides to your home back and forth. They are friendly, always saying they can do it. I need to have a repair on Monday but I'm going to be in the hospital. Very professional.

Verified CustomerAugust 02, 2012

They did what they said and actually informed me of a couple things I needed. They did a very good job.

Verified CustomerJune 28, 2012

Well they were very flexible. I explained my situation and they actually they delivered my car to me. It was one of those situations where they were really nice about it all. I had to go back to Illinois while they worked on my car and I caught a limo from the airport to a hotel and they were nice enough to deliver my car for me to the motel so I wouldn't have to get it when it was all done. I have had two cars repaired by them and I was very satisfied both times with the work they have done. Just so that you know, my insurance company is USAA and they are a very good insurance company and they recommended that company to me, so that was enough for me to get there and I was pleased once I got there.

Verified CustomerMarch 18, 2012

They did a good job. They were prompt and honest and my problem was quickly diagnosed. There was not a lot of trial and error. They seemed to know exactly what they were looking at.

It was done on time and I was very satisfied with the work they did.

Doug is AWESOME!! I had to write this review because I was so impressed with his help and customer service. I had my Jag in another shop and felt I was not getting the best price for the parts being installed. Doug took time out to help me look for what I need, saving me $500!! I will defiantly be telling everyone who will listen that they should give Northwest Auto a chance. Next time I’m looking for a shop, it’s a Jag after all...lol, I’m calling NW Auto. Thanks Doug, you ROCK!
